Guacamole Spread and Dip

I fell in love with Guacamole since I studied in USA, my favorite breakfast was home-made whole grain toast with guacamole spread and grapeseed oil veganaise sandwiches.  I am missing it!!!  
Even though I can get the grapeseed oil veganaise at here anymore, but I still able to make Guacamole, because it is a simple recipe and the ingredients are not hard to find.

a. 1 ripe avocado, mash with a fork and stir till creamy
b. 1 small onion, finely chopped
c. 1 small tomato, diced
d. 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
e. a pinch of sea salt
f.  1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves (optional)

Mix all the ingredients together and spread on toasts or serve with your favorite corn chips. 

Guacamole does not keep well, it oxidizes in the air.  Make it at the last moment before serving.

Red Dragon Fruit Konnyaku Jelly

Last time I made Konnyaku Jelly and my families really enjoy it.  I made more today because I got a red dragon fruit from my mother's farm.  I always want to give this a try, because I know that this fruit's natural color will make the jellies look appetite and nice.  
What I did was put some finely diced dragon fruit in each mold.  Poured the boiled Konnyaku jelly into the mold and used a chopstick to stir it until the color mix well.  I was so happy because it appeared just like what I expected.   The little tiny black seeds even made the jellies look fresh and cute.   

Put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
